    Hi,

    Is there any documentation on how to use the "feeds and notifications" module? I dont see any field to enter the feed url.

    Thanks,

    Hi Sonu Kapoor,

    You can specify feed url from its settings in the publish as content area, refer to attached image. Feeds and notifications documentation can be found in our online user manual here.

    Great, now how do I view the content of that feed?

    Here is what I am trying to achieve: I would like to add an external rss feed, import the content into the sitefinity database and display it as news. Is that possible?

    Hello Sonu Kapoor,

    Please review the attached screen cast importing an external feed for the blogs. The principle is the same for news.

     Hi,

    How do I disable the Feeds & Notifications section from the Administration context menu?
    Or even take the Alternative Publishing section off?

    Please see attached image for a better explanation.

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hello Andrei,

    Have you tried to remove/set permissions to the backend page?

    Ivan,

    I would prefer to remove it altogether rather than just hide it.

    I can see it in the Backend Pages. Do you think it would be OK if I just remove it
    from there completely?

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Ivan,

    At my peril I have deleted the Alternative Publishing and renamed the Dashboard page to User Manual
    and it seems to be holding. I will keep you advised.

    Many thanks,
    Andrei

    Hi,

    I was hoping to get some clarification on how the feeds work. Can i create a feed in Sitefinity that displays information from content blocks on particular pages. Not news or blogs per say, but stand alone content blocks.

    I realize it may not be set up this way, as it's a bit unusual. If this is the case, would my best course of action be to investigate using the API to produce page content as dynamic xml?

    Any advice is mega appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Pat

    Hi Robert,

    In order to be able to display some content from content block in a feed you need to create your custom outbound pipe for this. We have prepared a blog post with samples on creating custom pipes. Please check it out here: Publishing system brief walkthrough.
